In a significant escalation of the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine, both sides have begun using drones on a large scale. This marks the first full-scale drone war between two nations in modern history.
The use of drones by both sides has allowed for unprecedented levels of surveillance and attack capabilities. Russian and Ukrainian forces have been using drones to gather intelligence, conduct reconnaissance, and launch precision strikes against enemy targets.
The use of drones has allowed both sides to conduct operations with minimal risk to their own troops. Russian and Ukrainian drones are equipped with high-resolution cameras and other advanced sensors, allowing them to collect real-time information on enemy positions and movements.
While both sides have been using drones for several years, the current conflict marks the first time that drones have been used on such a large scale. The use of drones has also raised concerns about civilian casualties, as well as the potential for unintended escalation of the conflict.
The conflict between Russia and Ukraine has been ongoing since 2014, when Russia annexed Crimea and began supporting separatist rebels in eastern Ukraine. The conflict has resulted in the deaths of over 13,000 people and has displaced millions.
The use of drones in the conflict adds a new dimension to the already complex and volatile situation in the region. It remains to be seen how the conflict will evolve as both sides continue to utilize this new technology.
